Eye lids stay shut

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My mom has had PD for 20 years.. Lately her eye lids are staying closed and at the same time she is also slowing down her motions.

I have read about botox injection etc.

Is there any other way to improve this condition?

Thank you

Sam

In my case (20+ years of PD symptoms) my sticky eyelids were caused by ever more slowly blinking of the eyes. I have had extremely dry eyes for at least 15 years, made much worse by LASIK 12 years ago. I use extra thick eye drops during the day and a petroleum jelly/mineral oil gel at night (all OTC). My favorite brands are Genteal and Systane.

 

I have also had problems with excess saliva, for which I receive Botox injections every 3 months or so. It seems to me that if dryness is the problem, Botox would make it worse.
